When warm weather comes in, we are thinking what household chores were going to do. Argh! Driving a nail into the wall has caused one to many bruised thumbs. It’s not you, it’s the hammer. Over time the tool’s head becomes smooth which makes it more likely to slip when it hits a nail.
To protect your fingers, you need to run a piece of sandpaper over the hammer’s head to roughen up the metal surface. This will add grip and friction, making painful mishaps less likely. Hope this will help you a little bit on your house fixing this summer.
